Why Lerner

A Lerner School education is an investment in your child, your family, and your community.

Each Lerner child excels as a confident student, a compassionate community member and as an ethical citizen in a diverse world—making a positive impact every day. Lerner students are prepared for whatever the future holds.

Excel as a confident student

We celebrate each child as a valuable and unique individual. Our low student-to-teacher ratios and individualized instruction enable our staff to provide the very best for each student. Lerner students are confident, inquisitive, articulate and bright, and are exceptionally well-prepared for what comes next. We provide our students with the highest standards of academic excellence. Our outstanding faculty differentiates instruction to inspire each student to achieve his or her full academic potential. We foster in our students a love of learning, curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking skills so that they emerge as independent thinkers and self-motivated life-long learners.

An ethical citizen in a diverse world

Lerner students learn and live the values of Tzedakah (Charity), G’milut Chasadim (Acts of Loving Kindness), and Kavod (Respect) everyday. Through these Jewish values, compassion and environmental literacy, students learn to build a just and caring world.

A compassionate community member

While families send their children to Lerner for our outstanding integrated Jewish and academic programs, the big surprise is the strength and vibrancy of our diverse community. Parents, teachers, and community members support the students and each other, building a caring, respectful, and supportive environment. Both students and their parents find themselves making friends for life at Lerner.

Making a positive impact everyday

Lerner students are grounded in Jewish values and a strong Jewish identity. Our students lead a compassionate, caring Jewish life every day, soaking in the knowledge, culture, and values that guide our heritage. Lerner children learn to respect differences and celebrate the shared experiences and richness of varied Jewish traditions. Lerner students are mensches – the type of children that others look up to.

The Lerner School welcomes students age two through grade five.
